No, paletted characters (which respond to 'color') will be covered by the "text" value.  The distinction really is what I said before:

> Not only that, with paletted fonts, the "text" emoji can be multicolor too. ^_^ The distinction really is "does it get painted like text (and respond to 'color')" or "does it get painted like an image" (and ignore any color-defining properties), thus the current names.
